Chelsea have been linked with several players as the January transfer window draws nearer and that has been the norm for the better part of the last three weeks once it was clear that the Europa League holders can sign players.
The Blues’ transfer window ban has been lifted by the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) as they won’t serve the final window ban of the two-window ban after it was reduced by the body.
They had already served the first part of that ban imposed on them by FIFA for rules broken in the signing of youth players.
Chelsea have been linked with a lot of players from Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho to Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha but they can also explore the option of signing three of their ex-players.

Former Chelsea players like winger Jeremie Boga, Nathan Ake, and Patrick Van Aanholt have been showing the quality they possess in the colours of their respective clubs.
Jeremie Boga has been one of best players for Italian Serie A side Sassuolo after netting four goals and an assist.
Nathan Ake is the best defender at Bournemouth and Chelsea have a £40m buyback clause for him and it expires next month.
For Patrick Van Aanholt, the Dutch international has been a consistent performer for Crystal Palace in the Premier League.
